Consumers are increasingly giving preference to brands that align with causes they care about and that effectively share that message. 82% of shoppers want to shop with brands that align with their values and are happy to spend more in the process. We are amped about this! It's energising to see so many consumers voting with their wallet and choosing brands that are making this world a cleaner, healthier and a more just place.

Virtue Collection based giving - consider this option if your margins are higher on some products over others, if you would like to share a stronger social/eco message already embedded in a product line or give shoppers a great reason to purchase specific stock. Merchants can also align different causes to collections in their store.
